Did you all vote for Proportional Representation?

That may explain why you have all of the smaller parties so high, they all want proportional representation as it benefits them more.

Also if you voted for the Euro, that may have helped.

Mine:

1. Conservative
2. Labour
3. Green Party
4. Liberal Democrats
5. Plaid Cymru
6. Scottish National Party

Shocked I am a Labour supporter! Not a Tory supporter!

I did vote for proportional, but voted against the Euro... though probably my strong stances favoring devolution tipped the scales.

Maybe the test is just ed up Smiley

I will vote for Tony Blair if he is still the Labour candidate at the first election I will be able to vote in.

This test is pretty skewed.

Australia was highly predictable, except for 1 and 2:
1 AD
2 Greens
3 Labour
4 Libs
5 Nats
6 One Nation

I think I've never had to click on "high" that often in any SelectSmart thingy before.

UK:

OK, my first wasn't a big surprise... Wink

1. Conservative

2. Greens

3. Labour

4. Lib Dem

5. Plaid Cumry

6. SNP

Apart from the Greens, this ranking makes sense.

Australia:

1. Liberal Party

2. National Party

3. Labour Party

4. One Nation (ARGH!)

5. The Greens

6. Australian Democrats

I predicted both of my numberone results correcty, for the first time I think on any of those tests. Smiley

Might want to test this one too. British political idelogies, not as good since you can't pick varying importance for different things.

Most tests like that are:

a) wrong
b) out of dare
c) pointless
